Dessert Without The Guilt: Low Fat Banana Mousse


I know I'm guilty of posting far too many delicious, drool worthy desserts that are full of fat, butter, cream, chocolate, and everything else bad for us. To make up for all of the fattening recipes, and to please my dear friend FitSugar, I recommend that we make a creamy dessert that is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium! The smooth mousse takes its full balanced flavor from real ripe bananas and makes a nice finish to a heavy grilled meal, a crisp filling salad, or a cheesy sandwich. Go ahead, have dessert without the guilt. Get the recipe, just

Sorry - this really didn't do much for us.  Might be nice as a snack, as it is basically just banana flavored yogurt (more yogurt than banana), but it was not dessert-y in the slightest.  Nor did it have any resemblance to mousse.

Some of my favorite desserts are fruit mousses! Unfortunately a lot of those fruits aren't available in the US (or actually in most parts of the world), or if they are I don't know what the translation for the name is. One that you can get is passionfruit (we call it Maracuya).

looks DELISH... definitely printing out the recipe . PARTY SUGAR & YUM SUGAR... you guys should have a link to have printer friendly versions of the recipes and not just links to the original pull from the other websites because sometimes, not even the other websites have printer friendly versions, you know? ...
